I have done a few posts on President Trump and his obsession with immigration. It has been over a year since I wrote about the extremism we have seen on the left.
Some of it is just talk. Beto O’Rourke wants to tear down all the walls. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says all Hispanics should be let in because they are native peoples. It’s a free country and they are entitled to their opinion.
The actions of many cities and the state of California are far more dangerous. Whether or not police ask someone about their citizenship is within their discretion. The sanctuary movement won’t notify federal authorities if a convicted criminal is being released. How an elected official can care more about felons than the safety of their citizens is beyond my comprehension.
President Trump has talked about releasing illegal aliens into sanctuary cities. I don’t have a problem with that assuming that they get the support they need and are not just dumped on the streets. He once talked about them infesting America. Describing people with a term normally reserved for cockroaches and rats is a good indicator that he isn’t very concerned about their welfare.
We are in desperate need of immigration reform. As with so many other issues, both extremes make that impossible.
